The Small Stars

Band members: Miles Zuniga (as Guy Fantasy) - Vocals, guitar, M.C. Jeff Groves (as Buddy Llamas) - Saxophone, guitar, vocals Landis Armstrong (as Richard Steele) - Guitar, vocals Jeff Johnston (as Godfrey McCambridge) - Bass, vocals John Bush (as Brick Masterson) - Drums, percussion, vocals Justin Sherborn (as Glen Moog) - Keyboards, accordion Band description: Born of the drum-addled minds of Fastball's Miles Zuniga and Jeff Groves, The Small Stars early beginnings go way back to Austin, Texas circa 1989. The first performance by Guy Fantasy and Buddy Llamas took place in a lesbian coffee house just off Austin's famous 6th Street music district. Sadly, before a second show could be arranged, rock bands, record deals, platinum albums, and world tours got in the way. Now, 15 years later with the preliminaries behind them, the pair are back, and they've brought a few more musicians with them. "A band that's a musical that's a band," is the seed of The Small Stars' rock-n-roll-vaudevillian nature. The band's characters, revue acts, and stage play explore limits the 'pop'-eratic structure. To push the story of Guy Fantasy and his cabaret, David v. Goliath narrative, Zuniga and Groves have written songs balanced upon the edge of Dean Martin's inebriaic croonings and David Bowie's character glam-slams. Sounds great on paper, but a funny thing happened on the way to the theater. Unlike most supergroups, this seemingly random amalgam became an actual honest to goodness BAND, the veritable sum-greater-than-the-parts ensemble.
